2024 Aluminum Plate is a typical hard aluminum alloy in the aluminum-copper-magnesium series, with a reasonable composition and good comprehensive performance. Many countries produce this alloy, which is the most widely used in hard aluminum. The characteristics of this alloy are: high strength, certain heat resistance, and can be used as working parts below 150°C. The density of 2024 aluminum alloy is 2.85 g/cm3. 2024 Aluminum Plate is widely used in aircraft structures (skin, framework, ribs, bulkheads, etc.), rivets, missile components, truck wheel hubs, propeller components, and various structural parts. We all know that 2024 aluminium plate and 7075 aluminium plate can be used in the aerospace industry, so why is 2024 aluminum plate used for aircraft propellers?
2024 aluminum plate is a light metal with low density and high strength. According to the working characteristics of aircraft in high altitude flight, we can conclude that the manufacturing materials of aircraft propellers need to choose materials with low density and high strength. 2024 aluminum plate just meets these two points, and currently, there is no other metal that can meet the requirements of low density and high strength.
The density of 2024 aluminium plate is only one-third of that of steel, which can greatly reduce the weight of the aircraft, reduce energy consumption, and improve the carrying capacity of the mechanical operation. Moreover, 2024 aluminum plate has good corrosion resistance, it can form a protective film in the air, which can prevent the aluminium plate from further oxidation and being corroded by corrosive gas. The processing performance of 2024 aluminum plate is superior, and the face-centered cubic aluminum has good plasticity, and good processing performance. The propeller of the aircraft is subjected to a large force, but the working temperature is not high. Therefore, it requires high strength, plasticity, and toughness. 2024 aluminum plate just meets these requirements. Therefore, aircraft propellers will choose 2024 aluminium plate as the material.
2024 Aluminum Plate is a typical magnesium-aluminum-copper hard aluminum alloy with a reasonable composition and good comprehensive performance. It belongs to aerospace aluminum, and has good heat resistance, high strength, good forming performance in hot state, quenching, and new quenching states. 2024 aluminium plate can be welded and riveted by special processes, and is an aluminium plate applied to precision parts.
2024 aluminum plate has certain performance advantages in precision parts, with excellent performance in fatigue resistance, shock absorption, and high temperature resistance. Moreover, it is easy to carry out processing design. The use of 2024 corrosion-resistant aluminum plate for precision parts can meet the material's requirements for strength and rigidity, and the strength and rigidity, as well as the fatigue resistance, are better than other series of aluminum plates. Therefore, 2024 corrosion-resistant aluminium plate is widely used in precision instruments.
